An interview with Jimi Tenor
CG: The audience might be a bit surprised,
even confused when they hear the opening track... How
do you think this album will be received?
JT: People are going to be happy to
hear something which is serious, but doesn't need to
last more that 5 minutes.
CG: Soaring through a beautiful dream
in "Paint the Stars" and, on the other hand,
soundtrack-like action in "Night in Loimaa"...
all in all, much of the music on 'Out of Nowhere' is
JT: The great thing about film-music
is the length. You can have complex stuff that lasts
for 23 seconds and that's it. Normally serious composers
wouldn't do short stuff and they start to do some sort
of musical masturbation that lasts forever and nobody
wants to hear.
CG: Would you like to do a soundtrack
some day? I understand much of 'Europa' was originally
written for a film...
JT: Yeah, directors call my manager
Geoff Wener. I want to work!
CG: Speaking of films... Any plans
to make some more of those?
JT: I hope my friend Jusu Lounela has
some ideas because I don't. There's no point to do films
CG: What's your personal favourite
on 'Out of Nowhere', and looking back, is there something
you would do differently now?
JT: My favourite is "Better than
Ever" although it could sound more psychedelic.
If I wanted to do something different I'd rather start
a new album.
